I just turned eighteen today, and I am realizing that it's almost time to fly the nest. Senior year isn't going to last forever, right? And so, I would like some advice from you people - you who have either made it to college, graduated college, or are planning to go to college. What do I do? I've almost gotten into Louisville, but their physics program doesn't seem all too great. Could I transfer upon making myself better known in the physics community? And what of research? Where should I start? What should I do? Or am I just freaking out about something that I don't need to worry about at this time? I'm a little scared, very anxious, and very happy at the thought of being a physicist. While I would rather challenge the clearly daring theoretical work, I would also not mind something a bit more stable and financially sound - like engineering. Although, up to this point in my life, mechanical things have done nothing but scare me. What should I do?
